Mission Statement

The Memphis District Association exists to unify churches as a group to combine efforts to accomplish goals that one church alone cannot do. As a group of churches working together, we will combine our talents, energies, and finances to promote and support Christian and missionary education, and fellowship with Baptist Christian Congregations.

The District Association was established for the purpose of churches becoming unified as a group to combine efforts to accomplish goals that one church alone could not do.  As a group of churches working together, we are able to combine our talents, energies, and finances to promote and support Christian and missionary education, including fellowship with Baptist Christian congregations.
